An Alert Rule lets you define the conditions that must occur to trigger an alert based on AdSecure detections. By default every detection made by AdSecure will get flagged as a violation. Alert Rules allow you to define alert conditions that would highlight the violations in the reports, but would also allow to generate notifications (emails, callbacks).
In this guide we will further explain in detail how to:
- Navigate to Alert Rules page
- Create an Alert Rule
- Edit an Alert Rule
- Delete an Alert Rule
Navigate to Alert Rules section
You can navigate to the Alert Rules via the navigation menu on the left of the application.
Create an Alert Rule
To create a new Alert Rule, simply click on the "New Alert Rule" button at the top right corner of the screen.
A panel will slide-in from the right of your screen.
a. Give a name to your alert rule, to easily identify it later.
b. Click on any of the 3 categories and select the violations you want to consider as alerts.
c. And submit.
You can create as many Alert Rules as you need to correctly monitor your scans. You will notice that violations are classified in 3 categories, easily identifiable by their color coding:
- Red for violations affecting the User Security
- Orange for the violations affecting the User Experience
- Black for violations affecting the User Advisory
Edit an Alert Rule
If you need to modify an existing alert rule, go back into the Alert Rules section, click on the Alert Rule to open it. Update the fields of your choice, then submit to save the update.
